NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 24/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Jonas Valaciunas (NO) (C) – $7,500

  • Ingram sprained his ankle just last game and is officially out today. This means big bumps to all the Pelicans players but most importantly, Joval. With Zion still sidelined and now Ingram out, Joval will be the main focus on offense. He is a lock on both sites in cash games.

Jordan Clarkson (UTA) (PG/SG) – $5,600

  • With Conley out, Clarkson is a very strong play in cash games as he should have a very high usage rate. Although he has been disappointing all season, he should have every opportunity to hit value and more against the Suns tonight.


Jonas Valanciunas (NOP) (C) – $8,300

  • Lock on both sites in cash games. LFG Travis Kelce doppelganger!

Cameron Johnson (PHX) (SF/PF) – $3,900

  • The Suns are hit with the injury train and Jae Crowder will be the latest player who is hopping on the train. This means a very cheap Cameron Johnson should be inserted into the starting lineup. This play allows you to be flexible on how you want to tackle this 4 game slate.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Evan Mobley (CLE) (C/PF) – $6,900
  • Josh Giddey (OKC) (SG) – $6,000
  • Devonte’ Graham (NO (PG/SG) – $5,200


  • Herbert Jones (NOP) (PF/C) – $4,700
  • Garrett Temple (NOP) (SG/SF) – $3,100
